You know how they say that when you start spending time with people, you pick up their mannerisms and speech habits? Well, it's definitely true, and I'd argue it even extends to my style. After two years of working here at Who What Wear, it's safe to say that my style has been directly shaped by those around me: my ridiculously stylish co-workers. I'm constantly being introduced to new trends by the likes of Lauren and Nicole, novel and exciting ways to wear pieces I already own, and my knowledge of designers has grown exponentially. I spend pretty much all day looking at clothes online, but there's something to be said for seeing how other people whose style you envy actually style and wear items. And luckily, in this office, I don't have to go too far to find it, since these stylish women sit right next to me.
Sometimes the inspiration is so literal and direct that I actually buy the exact pieces of stylish work clothing that they're wearing because they're just that good. So good in fact, that I also had to share them with all of you. Below I've put together a list of 11 pieces I bought solely because my co-workers already owned them. From belts and sweaters to bags and shoes I directly copied them, and, yes, I'm proud to say it. Keep scrolling to see and shop them below. Trust me, you won't regret it.
I never thought I'd wear a crystal belt, but I saw this outfit on Nicole and decided it was absolutely worth the purchase.
I don't love bright colors, but I do pretty much love everything Anna wears. So I went ahead and purchased this because I saw she had it. Yep, that's how much I trust her.
We've all seen this skirt everywhere, but Kristen makes it look especially fresh. I still wear mine regularly despite its popularity and actually ended up buying it in two other colors as well.
More Pieces on My Wish List
I haven't made this purchase yet, but I know I'll be pulling the trigger soon thanks to Nicole.
Staud can do no wrong in my eyes.
Another Ganni sweater I want? Duh.
These jeans go with everything.
Two crystal belts isn't overkill, right?
